Thousands of dentists around the country have teamed with “Operation Gratitude” to turn Halloween candy into cash. Children donate their candy to dentists, who’ll pay them one dollar per pound. The kids walk away with extra spending money, but less likely to get a cavity.
Then the dentists turn around, and with the help of “Operation Gratitude”, ship that candy overseas in care packages to our fighting forces of the United States military. Last year, the group collected over 125 tons of Halloween candy.
